3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
An opaque brown body with a tan head that had nice retention and lace. Body grew murky as some of the sediment was disturbed. Aroma was a mix of fruity esters. Some dark dried fruits, banana, bubblegum and some sugary notes. Flavor was initially sweet from the dark fruits, there was a mild presence of bread malts and more sweetness almost like brown sugar. Alcohol was present in the finish. Carbonation seemed adequate. A nice beer, but it came close to being cloying.

6 month old bottle. Bottle pours a nice hazy burnt orange with off white foam and decent lacing. The aroma is rich toasted malts and a dense fruits of a Belgian strong ale. The flavor starts lightly sweet with a unique Belgian maltiness and lends itself well to a smooth slightly boozy finish. Very good balance throughout and one if the best American quads.

Not really for me. Pours a nice dark Amber color with massive head. Tastes mildly sweet and complex. Some grass or rye. The 10.5 percent is a bit harsh for a beer.

12oz bottle to chalice. More brown than red pour with a luxurious head that forms some nice colonies on top after resting a bit. Aroma of Belgian yeast and a little candy sugar. Nice malty flavor with a spicy, peppery, and ultimately dry finish.

Pour is a cloudy brown amber, small off white head. Aroma has a bit of banana and dark fruit notes upfront, slowly mellows out to some caramel malt, yeast and dark fruit as it warms up. Taste is similar to aroma with some dark fruit and yeast that become more prevalent as it warms up, some herbal hops as well. A full body with good carbonation on the palate. Finish is sweet caramel malt, yeast, dark fruit plums and figs, brown sugar and mild bitter herbal hops for balance with a bit of sweet brown sugar and alcohol on the end. Finish is long and slightly dry. A noteworthy full flavored brew, very nice.

Murky brown foamy head. Raisins, prunes in the taste of the main body. Thick feel. Spicy end that tingles the lips. Alcohol whafts up the nose. A little card boardy. Good but not great.

Poured a hazy mahogany from the bottle. Bubbly coffee cream head. Fizzy first bite. Sweet, tart, syrupy goodness. Head sticks around for the first few mouthfuls. Great quad. Heavy enough to have your attention, and bubbly citrus to keep you around.

Pours a murky dark amber with a thick mocha head. There’s a floral, caramel, and dark fruit aroma. Sweet and mildly bitter taste that was on the boozy side. Flavor’s of raisins, caramel, fruits, herbal and earthy notes. Medium body that was lively carbonated with a dry boozy finish.
